upon just remtinerHtion. Wu notice llii« point, not at random, hut 
10 present a fciituro belonging to the cnaracter of tho cumplcta , 
lawyer. 

The chai-acteriatic of Mr. Peyton's life wiis efficiency. This effi- 
ciency ha4l for its clenienu native vigor of inl<'lleut, gn;nt rcsulute- 
neas of ehnrtiotor lunl courageous Hctf-coofidoncc, nniplc and thorough 
fivfjiiirements and the quickness, precision and dexterity of action 
that Ijcli-ng only to thooe who have been taught by a \arieil ex])eri- 
once to uiidcrsland lhoriMij,'lily hiimiin ntilure. In ciniverifnlion .Mr. 
Peyton was ready, entertiuning and instructive. But convvreatiuD 
wnii not his forte, tliough he was fond of it. He was not fluent, 
his manner was somotimee too direct for the hi;;hest style of polished 
social intercourse of a gencnd nature, and bejildt^i he had a remarka- 
ble way of induli^ing in a iitrmn of covert .intincid hnnter. whc-n his 
wonU would lie so much at variance with the expression of his coun- 
tenance, and particularly with the expression of his mouth, that th« 
bearer was often in an uncomfortable state of uncertainly how to 
take him. His pertmn was hu-go, and his hearing dii^iiScd hut nut 
grnecful. His manner wiis unaflceted, hut not without furinNlily, 
nor was it perfectly conciliatory. Some styled liiui aristocratic, 
while none oould deny that his self-reepect and conllilent energy 
gave an imperious OMSt to his deinennor. Wc luive oUenei- than 
once thought applicable to him, in u general way, those lines uf 
Terence : 

" Elliini.conlldcna, catiia, 
Cum fitclnm vldean. vidntiir Mse <)iisntiTis prvti. 
Tristid sHVuritos inoet iu Tullu,iil<iiie In verLie (idea." 

His voice was true and clear, and capable of sufficient variety, 
but without a single musical intonation, and a little sharper than 
you would expect to hear fiom it man of his .lixe and form. If it is 
aiiked what was the style oriiiNxpeakinir, it may be replied — ^just what 
might be expecttxl to belong to such a man a» he has been described, 
that is to say, never was the speaker a more complete rcBedion of 
tlie man than in his case. Wo cannot believe tnat any one ivho 
knew him was ever surprised when they heard liiui speak ; what he 
Mid was Juki what iliey would expect him to sajr. This is of\en the 
oatc with s|i«ikers and writers, hut not always. Energy, reality 
mh) efficiency were his cbaractorietics as a man, and equally so aa a

never led nwiiy by the toinplin^; cboracler of any peculiar topic, to

with foam. ^1 

Mr. Pcj-ton's langiutge was forcible, pure and idiomatic. ItV 
served well llie vehicle of his tliou^liiEi, hut contributed nothing to 
ibom. Hicre is 3 ixuil mid le^liiimtc ndvuntiijic belonging to the , 
mHiiefly use uf wurda, oF which many great spvakeni knuw well 
how to avail themselves, 

Mr. Peyton aiu-ui|iti'd untiling of the sort. Itie diction vrn»|

branch of thv Innguage, and Iiis pcntcncen eame out in the mo 
natuml ordijr with umisuul clearness and vigur, but not unfrcquentl) 
with a plainneas that bordered upon homeliness. Ilis style, how- ' 
evvr, was always thai uf Kpeiiking m distinguished from mere con- 
vervalinn — a distinction which sonic ol'uur modern sjieiikers forpet, 
when in urdcr to appear at their ease, they treat with no little dJs- 
regiird not only the rules of rhetoric, but the rules of grammar na 
wdl, and uxe xvot'ds and phnises which are (to take a word from 
the viicabuiary wo are cnndcmmng) nothing better than shing.J 
On ihe cuntriiry, there wne in Mr. Peyton's stylo the fruit

siiect some of our able but greatly tedious lawyers, who tako up in 
re^rular succession every p».4i>iibk< point in the ease, however miuute, 
and worry us by officiously offering help where iiune is needed — so 
far Irom it he showral his consummate skill am well in wbnt be omit-

shorter in duration, ami yet fuller of nuilter than those of bis oppo^J

not stinted : but his figures were always intriKhiced ivh illuotratiuiMJ

in,l>eitair of any other client. The oil-quold meniiful maxim of 
the common law, " belter that ninety and nine guilty men should

caution to reA[K!Ct the n;j;btn uf Uie innocent, tuid not lut an injune-

by a few of hie cotempornrics, n-ho have reduced them to writing. 
Ho WM born at Stony Hill. Stafford County, Virginia, April 3, 
1778. After having ri>eeived the elemeutti of ctlucation in Frcde- 
rlckvburg, be entvri'd Ihe Univorifity of New Jeriiey, I'rinovton, 
where ho wna graduated in 1797, nnd received from that insti- 
tution the degree of A.M. Ho returned to Virginia and studied 
law under .Judge Huahrod Washington, of the Supreme Court 
of the I'liited SliiU-x. Though pursuing a hiboriouH course of 
Icgid n'nding, he eontinu<^il to cultivate the tattte for literature 
with which hia parents had inspired him, and soon acquired the 
unticc nf tlie able and learned men of Fredericksburg an<l Hich- 
mtind by the extensive and varied knowledge he disjilityod in hia 
<!on versa! ion. In 1800 lie commenced the pnictice of tbc law 
at Fredericksburg, and almost immediately obtained an oppor- 
luuity, in defence of a man charged with murder, of exhihtting 
liis rare powrr* ns an advocate. New opportunities for diotin- 
guieJiing himself were soon ofibrodi and in the euurte of two 
years he was in full practice antl his aervicett rewarded by a 
IiWldimnie income. In IHdl he married Susan, daughter of Wil-

kospitaltty." and thei'e was perhaps no mansion in all tliis fiivvred region 
where it waa more generously aud olegnnily dispensed, through iDauy yean, 
Uian at " Montgomery Hall." 

In tlic war of 1813-15 he sorvcd with distinction ae major on 
tlio etatt'ofGen. Robert I*orter6cld, and on liis return was choten 
Diiiyor of the city of Staunton, and xcrveil till iKl 7.

patiating upon those principles which lie at the foundation of all 
duly, and are vtjiiully npplicublv to nil it« forms. 

In I8S2 Mr. I'cylon inurricd his second wife, Ann Mnnlgomery,

wholly to withdraw him. 

In 1S3(> ho was clceied state aenalor for the AugiiAta and Rock-

^Mcribed by Oviedo in 1537, who sets Itihero aside until after paaaJnr

three {luiotn under notice. Tho latitudes nre incorrect, but this is the <m9e 
with maps in general at that period. The Cupe uf the Arenas a put too 
far south. The latitude of the Iludsou, however. Is nearly right, being in 
41' N.. and the Kiitmlion is dnncrilH^tl perfectly. Thence. Oriedo says, tho

** Briso,"* not knowing that " Bi'iso " wiu a cori'tiplion of " Lui«n.** and 
that tlie two names referred to the name thing. " C. do Lexus " stands for 
" Baxos," the " Leiua " bdrift a corruption of " Baxos." " C. do Lexus.*' 
bow«Ter, is properly <^>iitiec led with Claudia (Lulea), the modern Block 
Island, of)' Newport. The position of " I.cxiis " in its relation to iho Bay 
,of Puri'ly (CX lit liu Coadii) and Sundy Hook (0. di arniat) show* that 
encli a place as Cape Cod was well known. Besides, he puts his Cupe do 
Lexus in the ri^ht laiiiude, that ia near 41° N. His mistake consisted in 
putting Clandia anil Lexus too far east, and in putting the P«nob»cot west 
of tlic«c points. The latitude of Claudia wtu lixctl from the data in the 
.letter of Vcrra«.ino. wliich, howcTcr did not givo the longitude. Neverihc-

tn the letter of Verrnzaiio, Claudia wat represented apprnnehabie from the

Kornmbcgu or the I'onohseot, it is found to show a Bubstantiul reseniblanoe

'errors of M creator too closely, but it is not necessary to dwell upon the 
work in detail, as it sniTices to ohserro that the doline.itions of Ortelius 
maintain the identity of Baxos. Ortelius, like Mercntor, piit« Lexus aad 
Claudia in the right latitude, and the Bay of l-'iindy (B. de Ioe Comics) in 
Um proper place, though ' C. do Arenas " is too tar south, lie also du- 
plicates Cape Cod. 

Dr. Dee'* unpublished map of l.iSO, now in the British Museum, does 
Dot follow Mcrcattir in his outline of the Now Knglanil coast, but copies his 
error in putting " arrecifos " (Capo Cod) east of tho Noiumlwsa, though 
showing Sandy Hook and the Bay of Knndy io (heir proper plaoea.

foire. Nor is it probable ihnt Goinold was the llrst Englithmati who landed 
upon tbo Ciipo.ll Still, Goanold is popularly credilod at the " Discovurcr." 
Upon what, thon. is bis claim baaed ? The answer hu alrcwly lucn givftii, 
a* ihn Cnpo had been well known to Keograplior* over aince the time of 
Terrazano and Gomez. Under the circuniBtancos, tho advancomeiit of Goa- 
nold in this connection is a little cnriuns. 

Pint of all, it shonld be noticed that Go«nold made no cinim for bim- 
■elf. It i« aimply recorded that he gave the present namo lo tho Cape. 
Oti tlic other hatui no e.-irly writer made any claim on bis behalf. It is Iruo 
that, in 160'J, when Undson was on the coast, Jnet, his pilot, wmle in the 
Journal, "This is that headland which Captaine Bariholomew Gosnold dis- 
oorcrcd in the year 1G02. and culled Cape Cod."^ Juot, however, ntea this 
wont, not in the modern sense, but simply Ui convey the ifloa of exploration 
or lurvey. This was the coinmoa use of the word in English. In iho con- 
tineiilal langiia)>e8 it was employed in the same way. The failure to appro- 
date this fact has led to bluuderu.** Verranano says that he " dUcovorod " 
{diteofitrto) countriea that all the world knew were discovered in thn mod- 
em sense that is found, many yoara before. Thus also liarlow '* dismvitrcd " 
Virginia in 1A84, at a time when the rej;ion was already famous; while tho 
Dutch in 1614 "discovered" portions of New Ivng land well depicted in 
the published French maps of 1G09 and IG13. All such writers as Mourt 
(Morton), 8mith, Bradford, lioiiier and Josselyn, use the word "discover" 
iu tho sense of to explore or survey. Hubbard kept up the usngi\ and ila 
general signilicaiiou was always underntuod. Juet simply meant to say,

endravor to follow hit tirtu of po«tority for several generations, acconlin); 
to Hulhuiitic information obtaiuod by much labor, from both town and family 
Ncunio. 

Althongb the town had bncn §ottlod in l<!3C, it wtu itill in its infancy 
wkicti our Afml appeiircd on tlie fiiago, to claim a place among hi>t fellotT nieu. 
I ipvo iwo or thrco oxtracu from ihu town records of Spiinglloltl, which I 
ntaik' iti November, I8GU, that rcaiJ as follows: "Jan. 'i, ItJ.M, — Ther* is 
([ranioil ([> Alfll Wright, a lioiiio lot containing thrvu acivs in the laTid iioxi 
yo Kouui} Hill." And Feb. \A, IG5ti, again: "It is graoieil u> AbtU 
Wrii/hl Att amount of Twenty (W) acros whidi liad formerly Como into the 
haiKlof lioKlanil Thomas, lying iu yo great plairi over yo great rirer, callud 
Chlckiippj plain, providi^d he continues five yoars in town." And it seems 
'•IB tli« MM|i>el tliat A« r<rn»r to stay, as Iio did for serctity yean. 

A^iisays tli« record: " March 13, IG60, — Tht^re is granted to Tliomas 
Itaiieruft AMI Wright, John I.amlwrd an<l Iticliard ,Siki'«, a parcel of land

Blight, Jr., lived niid di«d. 

His son, the first Nathaniel Bright, of Watcrtown, married Mary 
Cooiidge, of the F.^me ton-n ; and their son, the second Nathaniel 
Bright. tnarrie<) Ann Bowman, all of Watertown. The homestead 
of the second Niithanid Bright was ahout three-fourths of ft mtlo 
weat of the Oiildtttone place, and «<LiII remains in the hand* of bis 
dOBoeodanls. The old hou«c upon it, taken down in 1877, was said 
to have hccn built before 1700. 

TIte third Nathaniel Bright, son of the second, married Svbil 
Stone, of Sudbury, Mass., a deaccndatil of Gregory .Stone. Tticir

John Bright, the fiithcr of Jonathan Brown Bright, was n far- 
mer and a tanner. Unly two of tho dcscenilanis of tlvnry Uriglit, 
Jr.. are known to have received a college cduention; Houry, Har- 
vard 1770, and Nathimiel Francis, Harvard I86fi. But they have 
Ih^cu and are, almost withont exception, men of good senac, with a 
taste for rciuhng, and of prncttcal HDUiid judgment. Mr. John 
Bright's largo family made industry an essential virtue among Ida 
children ; and his strictly religious character made him a strict disci- 
plinarian to enforce it. At the ago of four Jonathan B. waa sent 
to the diMriel school ; and during the next ten years wils taught to 
read, to write and to cypher, working nl home durinj* the long vaca- 
tions. At fourteen he was sent for one quarter to W'"ciitford Acade- 
my ; after which he took lessons for a short time of the Rev. Sam- 
oel Ripley, 00 long pastor of the first pariah, AValthain ; but, having 
no desire for a collegiate cduoatioa, he rexumed labor on the farm 
and in the tan-yard. 

In 18tG ho attended, one term only, Framingham Academy. 
The next year, having no more taate for tanning or farming than 
for study, l>c went, with an older brother, to New Orleans by sea, 
thence up the river to St. Louis, and became his brother's clerk in 
a store. Here he remained until of age, with the exception of one 
season in a branch store at Franklin, on the Missouri. As ww>n oa 
be was of ago he began a retail business for himself in 8t. Sl«-

lowing year, 1823, of tl>c eeren meo of northern tnirth in Uwt town, 
four Jieil of fever x ani] the otlter three, includuig Mr. Brigbl, suffered 
■CTcrely with the sami- <li«riue. ThU dmtlctl him t» qtiii (he Hoiith. 
la 18:i4, finding no vcsacl at Mobile for BosKin, he went to New 
York and sought emplavment. Making an engagement with Black- 
Uoclt, Merle & Co., cotton brokers, he jmid first a brief visit, after 
MTCD ycant' iil)»ci>c«, to \m home ; llien returning, spent tweniy-Gve 
yearn in New York, firnt n» derk. aflcrwanU bm j>Hrtner; tlie firm 
changiog to Morlc & Bright, nnd then to Merle. Bright & Co. 

In 1849 he returned to the homestead on Beaver Brook, then 
occupied by his maiden sinter Mary ; with whom also an uomarried 
brother John resided. Mr. Bright built here a larger house a few 
feet caat of the old one ; ami he nnd hi* only ohild, tvith the brother 
and fritter, constituted the fumily. Thirty-two yeara al>Kncc had 
not diminished his attachment to the old place and to tho compan- 
ioDB of hie childliood. They passed away befure him, but tlie thirty 
jeare of quiet enjoyment which followed his retirement to the ])lace 
of Via birth, were made much hap|iier by the prolongation of the 
sister's life nearly to the close of his own. 

In lt^:f 7 Mr. Bright married Miss Mary Ilugucnin Garbrance; 
bat his happiness with her was intenuiited by her early death in 
1830. Her only child, a duughler, came with her father ti> Walt- 
ham in 1849, and lu 18(>1 riisrried her cuuKiii Wdlium Ellery Bright. 
They with tfacir three children still occupy the estate. 

The thirty years, from 1»49 to 187y,'in which Mc Bright liTcd 
free from aeiive UisincsB cares, were by no means yearK of idleucai. 
With the CKCvption of a journey in 185!) to Nni>*au. Havana, New 
Orlcaui and St. Louis ; and a shorter one in 1860 to BuSido and 
Quebec ; the occupation of all thoeo years was found in his native 
town, doing private kinduessea and fostering puhhc improvemente. 
I reineuilier that one of the corlicat impreMious I received of him 
waa from the chninmin nf lEie board of ussniior*, who told me that 
be hud just had a peculiar experience ; Mr. Bright had come in, 
after the town bad been aeeessed, and said, "You hare not made 
my tax large enough ; add bo many thousand dollarfl to my personal 
property." It revealed the diameter of the man ; it was both liia 
integrity nnd hi» public spirit that mixle him thus voluntarily assume 
a larger proportion of the public cxpcoscv. 

In 1866 he was put on a town committee to select ground for n 
new ccmctpry ; drew up the report whicli was accepted, and named 
all the avenues in the new grounds. Mt. Feake. iificr ancient Walt* 
ham familietf ; a l^iken of the strong interest which he liven took in 
the matter of genealogy. 

He (umi«hcd a good deal of valuable local history and antiqtia- 
tian lore to the W'altham Sentinel and the Waltbam Free Press, 
during the years 1856-18t>3. He was iiD active prumuter and lead-

man of his pure, siuijilc and munly integrity, that, after ltf5tt, ho 
resoliiiely decUued to aerve »□ uiiy cummitii^e in town afl'iiii-d. 

In IS'lfi^, juBt before miiring Irom buDinvds in New York, Mr. 
Bright nceidentsUjr hcnrd that Dr. Hcnrj Bond, of Philadelphia, 
had a genealogy of the Bright family. Mr. Bright had a great in- 
terest in th»t matter, although u]> to that lime he had had no leisure 
to cxumine it. He immi^dinU-ly wrote to Dr. Bond, and the corre- 
•pundvnee woa kept up until the latter gentleman'* death. Dr. 
Bond proved to have dMccnded, io one lino, from Henry Bright, 
Jr., and was also remotely connected with Mr. J. B. Bright by 
the marriage of his gr.indfather to Mr. Bright'e aimt. Di'. Bond 
riailed Mr. Hrighl at Waltliuin an<l upent acme weeks there, while 
both WL're much engaged in collecting genealogical material. Mr. 
Bright aftvrwuni employed Mr. H. G. Somcrhy to make reeearehea 
in England; and in 1858 printed bis Taluablc records of "The 
Brighis of Suffolk, Eng." 

Since that volume wus jirinled Mr. Bright biii c<tllected material 
which would fill throe nmre volumes of the same size, rehiling to 
tlie fumily on this tide the Atlantic, and to other families of the 
Mine name.* 

The deticendanta of Henry Bright, Jr., have been mostly farmer* 
aod nicchaniw, ocoaatonally shopkeepers, none holding other tlioa 
' town or parish offices ; but none dishonoring the name. The num- 
ber bcJiring the name is fimnll, not exceedtnz. to the year 1850, one 
hun<lrcd and tifty ; but the descendauta in the Jemale line liave been 
more numerous. 

By n will dated December 15, I860, Mr. Bright bequeathed to 
Hnrvanl College fitiv thousand dollars, the income of whieh sh<^uld 
ho equally divided between the purchase of books for the college 
libi-nry and the au|i|Kirt of sdii)lar«lii{is to which Brigbts, lineally 
and legiti mutely descended from Henry Bright. Jr., shall have pri- 
ority of einim. "I have selected Harvard College, " he says, "the 
most ancient and venerated seat of learning in my native state, to 
be the custodian of iliia leg.icy, as an expreesion of my appreciation 
of ita liliernl yet conservative character; tnuling that its govern- 
ment will always ri'Mpcrt the nincerc convictions of the reeipiciit* of

ADDRESS OF THE HON. MARSHALL P. WTT-DER. 

thllTeried at Iko AnnnkI HnriiiiiE ot the Niiw-Enoljisd Dutonic, OmKitJMiOAI. 

SoctBTT, Jimuftry J, l*»l, 

Genti.kmen or the SoriErr : 

EiGiiTERK nrxpRKn AM> KionTT i» gone! Time with unerring 
finscr Iioe engraved on ttic cvclc of ngcs anuclicr ycnr. Itiit, tlitinks 
10 llim witb vrboni lime haa no heginning nor end, wc still live to 
pro!i»'ute t)i« noble work in whi(.-Ii we are engaged. Thanka alitoto 
you, nir fellnw uBaociate*, for iilacing me m^itiii nt the lu>ad of our 
Inslitiition , iind for _V"ur ponrlcsv. cjunvel Hnd co-opiTntion, without 
which nil my luhor* would hnrc Iktd in vain. 

'llio past year, if wc cs«pt rhe usual turmoil in the Eiist and the 
disquietude and distress in Irclmtd, haa beeu remarkable for the 
peace and profpt'riry of ilic world. No great wars liuve drenched 
Die earth with l)l«od, and ni> great revnIutioiiH have i^htikcn the 
thrones of luonarchie^. In our own land, the year has been tliu moot 
tnemorable one in its history, for rapid advancement and general 
pmvperity, placing it only third on the roll of cominercinl nations of 
Um! globe : and the pea<»ful clccliim of niiuther President of the 
Uniro<l State* Ii-id been cvcrvwherc recognized as the precursor of 
•till greater growth, wealth and power. 

Most heartily tlo I rojniiie to meet ngitin tin mnny old friends with 
whom I luivtf dt'iod nhoulder to shoulder for a lung conrne of yc&n 
ia Aoda] inlcrcouriw and in efforts fur the advancement of our 
Society, whose roiccs are ahvnvs heard with pleasure, and wlio«e 
prewncc always adds dignity and enc-ourngcmeni to our work. 

Many who were wilh uh a yeitr ago have pusited the bridge of 
life, and wait for nn un ihc other shore. While we mourn their loaa. 
ami may find consolalion in thoso promises which are everlasting and 
imperishable, wo should reiucmher tlmt our lives arc transitory and 
•hort. Alt are subject to the Almighty behvut that declares "dust 
tbou art and unto duHt nhnit thou return," — wc soon pasa away like 
rinplea un tlic «urfav,c of the water, or n shadow passing over the 
plain. Man rives as the flower in spring time, blooming with bright 
anticifMtions of ripening years — revelling in the summer-tide of 
bvor and honor, when suddenly there eomes "a froiit, n killing 
fro*t.~ at»d he witherci and .-ilnkn lik<! the faded loaf to mother earth. 

During the past year, ax will be seen by the Hilton i>grnphcr'« re- 
port, forty-fonr members of the Sociely have died. Of most of 
tbcin a|)propri«te notiec has been taken in the record of our pro- 
wediugs. This is a larger number than in any other year aincc the 
fbrniAtion of our Society. Their average age is over semnty-ooe 
jcar*, being about the same as for the last live ycara.

temperance and other moromonls of moral rclbrm. Ho is the 
author of many religious and other works extensively circulateil both 
nt honiR Olid abroad, which have placed lilm in tlie front rank of, 
public men. 

The Rev. Silas Keteluim, whose New Hampshire Biographical 
Dictionary, on which lie was engaged for many years, boa been Wt^ 
rortunnlely left nnliniiihed, was a writer of much talent, oitd of in>

Of hitnulf lie Btstea: "I wm placed on iho bunn) ul' ticlcclmcn,

RcT. George Punchanl. Mr. Culler wae Hioturiogmpher for fiv« 
an<l a half ycnr«, and difchnrgcd the duiies of his ofBi'o with nhility 
and (iTcnt fidelity. He wasnn active co-worker, deeply intcic«(cd in 
the progrcM of our work. He took a lively intcreitt in all benevolent 
eS'oru. especially in Uie CliriHtiJun faith, of whidi im- thirty yeara he 
WM a faithful niinistei, a contcientions laborur, a winr cuunKellur and 
mw friend, whose abidin); faith in the joy« of a better world gave n 
dutrni and beauty to his litV. When I miw him Wt, be guve me 
UlM parting beneiliction, — "If we nureCnut n::»in in thi.-> worM, I hope 
«• dull walk the itrcela of the New Jerusalem together in tliu world 
abova." 

The Rev. Mr. Pnnehard wa« truly a christian man, in whose char- 
acter were combined eboeriulncvd, iiymjMithy and love. He wad active 
in nil ilie bi;n(!v<di-nt objeet4 of the nge — in the pulpit, tlie selionl, 
iumI the cdiloriiil chair. The later years of bis life were devoted to 
viBiting the suffering and »ick. and going about doing good. Although 
rafferuig iVnm severe trials himself, be wiu alwaye cheerful and pa- 
liciit, never for u moment wavering in hiei trust in God and a glorious 
immoriodily beyond the ^ntve. He wits n man of literary tiule und 
■UCDMve reading, and wa« connected with the Uoelon Tniveller for 
many years. Hie writings were marked wkb great eimplicity and 
force of diction. He ivaa especially attached to tlie pure SasoD.

which are to he submitted at this time, afford •;ratifytng evidence of 
our pro}i;resaivear)d prosperous condiiioii, and ufihoiuereasinf; interest 
inaairesied by the public lu the objects we are seeking to promote. 
These are, the eoUeelion and preservntiun of Historical, Biogniphieal 
and Gencalofpra) material, and the cultivation of an improved tAJit« 
for historical etudlcs. Uur Library contains lli.OOO volumes and 
50.000 piimphlcts, and its collection of Local ilistunes, such as 
towns, cities, counties and parishes, is very large. In family hia- 
toricit, it is more e-xieti>ive ihiin any other in imr country. lliidcr 
the care and supcrviHiim of its connnittcc, and tlic untiring labors of 
Mr. Dean, the Librarian, whose cheerful devotion to our work wc 
desire gratefully to acknowledge, it is now generally considered one 
of the heat depositories of historical information. 

In this connection, I am happy to state, that among the important 
Inbors of our member* the piwt year, and which will be valuable 
ncquieilions to our libraiT, arc those of the Boston Kerx>r<] Commil- 
siouers, Messrs. William 11. Whitmore and William 8. Applctoo. 
Since our Inst meeting, another volume, containing their fourth re- 
port luid the eariiciit records of Don-hcHter, has been issued, and 
uther volumes are now in press, under tlic able and praiseworthy 
superintendence of that committee.

to Bay that while our doord arc open, and in the intercat of hi«lury \ 
wc extend to them a cordial welcome, we have not really the room 
to give ihem tmitnble and couvenit-nt accommodations. Having

The space for the proper urrangeinent nnd diftjihiy of our books and

the room !h at present sufticicnt, and will be for itomc lime to come,

the volumuK arc crowded together in double or triple rows, render- 
ing it difficult to wiilidran- ihcm from their hidin<; places, us well oa 
puriluus to the security of their bindings. Fur oitr pumphlcle wc

We need likewise another fire-proofroom, oa Inrge, if not larger

is accumulating every day. It is the class of historical literature

geographical societies, the explorations and surveys of national gov- 
eniDients, and tlie uutlring eiiterprine of arolueologists. botli in our 
own and foreign lunds. It is, I think, only about sixty yeais sinoe 
the first geographienl todcty in the world wita esttibliiilied. Now 
there are more than fifly such associnttotis actively engaged in their 
appropriate work, wliich are constantly bringing to light territories and 
resmuroea in tlio hitherto unknown parte of tbe globe. One of the 
most important of iheae ia the American Geogniphical Society, of 
which Chief Justice Daly i« preiyiduiit. To the etlorls of iheso so- 
cieties tnid the patronaj^c uf {^vcrnincnts, wc are largely indebted 
for the extcnfiivo explorations in Asia Minor, Japan, China ; fjiouth, 
Ceotral, and N'ortlj America and the Arctic Shores. In regard to 
Ibe latter, wc umkrstand that Prof. Nordeni>kj'>ld believes that voy- 
ages tron) ihc Atlantic to the Pacific, around the North eo««tof A*ui, 
may be regulurly made by suilable steamers at the proper season of 
theyear. 

The geological and geographical surveys in our vast western ter- 
ritories, from New Mexico to our nortlium Alaska, and tlie great 
territory lying wcat i»nd north-west of the great lakes — wluch our 
ossoeiiiic, Mr. Charles C Coffin, has graphically described as sdfB- 
cient for eleven states as large m Ohio, luid ultimately to be joined 
to oar own territory — wc constantly opening up ti> us more and 
more of t)i« immense acreage and fertility of our soil. It is within 
the present century that Lewis nud CInrke nsccndcd the Missouri to 
its Buurcc, reached the Pacific, and returned throuj;h the Vellow 
Stone, now opening up to u» by the Nurtheru Paciiic ItaiUoadt 
giving the world a knowledge of tlie Hur(Hui»iug ricluiet>» and reoourcai 
of these regioiu. 

The Kcports of Haydcn. Powell and others, in regard to otir 
wirttcm and south-western territories, continue to afford most 
imjiortant information, and are regiinled iiit among the mu«t valuable 
Dullnyii of our gnverniiient. Fruin the researches in South and

manifuflcd iit fumily history snd genealogical rc«carch««, for which 
OUT Suficly is so justly cdebmied, and in which from its earliest in- 
ception it has been zealously engnged. Many of us can refnember 
the time when rory liitle utientiuii wiih ^ivi'ii to the Mibject, by

dvcly. in the study of family or town history. Nuw tlie whole of 
New England is wide awake to its importaoce, and our libraries are 
eODStiinlly thronged for hooks and information on tliese subjects. 
It hft» Itecoine A (-iimmun muily. nnil our arehivc are richly stored 
with h<Mik« whii-h are daily c»n«tilleil for informntiim. The 
great deficiency of fnmily histories was, until ivilhin n few ycjirs. a 
•oDrco of deep regret. To supply this want was the object and 
purpose of the fnunders of our Society, and ujion it ihe Society has 
bestowed special and persinti'nt labor. Our depnrtuient of genealogy 
and family Inntory. I am happy to repeat, hnw hwiunc a grciit de« 
pooilory and ci>ntiiini< a vnsi nmount of vnluable infonuntion. 

The in^iuiry is sometimes mnde, of whnt use arc nil these 
researches into tlio history of our families? To this we reply, 
tlini tlw history and even the g«m-ulogy of families seems by the 
Bible to have been of Divine origin, the rceunls of whicli hnve l>een 
deemed so important as to have been inscribed on its pni;c«, in the 
Hoes of ancestry and descent from Adam down to the christian era, 
thus to he curcftdly preserved, to sliow u« that the great itnd good 
of the world OItM^ not by chnnco, but are the results of good futhcrs, 
good mothers and <;o<hI examples. Some men boast of biiiig self 
made : but, trace back iheir origin, and it will genemlly be found 
that what they posoesA of exctlli'nce came down from the inheritance 
of good blood and gooil j)ririfiplfit. Not to know from whence we 
came, not to care any thin;^ about otir anc«i>tiiri<, ix to detract from the 
honor and gratitude dtic them, to suppress from posterity and to hlot 
from human record the elements which have made us what we are. 

Strange, indeed, it is. that so little attention hud been given to 
this suUject in fi)rnier ycjirw. Says the late Kev. Mr. Ketchum, 
"It ix a fact that many men of aviTa<;e inlcltigciice do not know tlie 
luiineN nf their own gnuidfnthcra : nnd nil the knowledge they posscM 
■bout their ancestry is the common tradition tlint they descended 
from one of three brothers who came over from the old country, 
and that it is said there ai-e large cetatcs whicii have been tor a long 
tinic waiting to Iw eluimvd by ihone of their name." If it is con- 
ddcred a mnllcr of importance to trace the genealogy of our entile to 
tlie Herd Book, of the horse back to Godolpbin Anbian, or a strain 
of the camel back to an ancestry of one or two hundred years, how 
mur-h more noble and important to trace the blood of roan, made but 
'a little lower than the angels," and lord of thU lower world !

duce an nnet^lotc I leurncd with plenaurc and eurpri«e from the late 
Dr. Franklin, to whom I was introduced at Us seat near Paria, in

from bia chiiir and took me by the hand, aayinfr, " I shall ever rc- 
TCre the name of BoyUton ; Sir, arc you of the family of Dr. Zab-

Knd, nlytng nn hta jwlgmcnl, I TuitctI him as opportunities olFcrcd, 
Bad by his fnthi-rly counsels and encouragements I was saved from 
the abyss ol' destruction which awnitcd mv, and my future Tortime was 
based u|iou Ilia pwneiitiil advive mid timi-ly iivnisliinco. Sir, 1 beg yoa 
will vi>ii nic M often m you find yuu hnvo leisure while in l'ari«." 
During my stay I availed myself of this, visiied and dined witli him 
Mversl lime*, and slways received his marked attentions." 

Or. Iloylston was in England in 1724 and 1725, and young 
Franklin reached London nbuiil the end uf the year 172-1, where lie 
fuutxl ht- IiihJ been deceived by worthless letters of reconiniendation 
fnuii <iov. Keith, and was almost friendless and moneyless, though 
lie sOon found cmploynieni as a (trinter. The incident above roluted 
is the more creditable to Ur. Itoyltton from the fiict that the JiVui 
Eniflnml Counint, ronditi-U'd by ihv Franklinn, had joined in the 
xuti'ry against inucuhiliun, by wliieh Dr. Boylston hiid suffered so 
miieh. 



Dr. Boylston Iind a son John, wliu presented many intcrc-nting 
trails of character. His letters to which I have had access show A 
very amiable man, kind to hU relatives in Boston, simple in tastes, 
and wanuly iittaelied to \m native town. He hua been ranked as a 
tory, niid in uienlion^'d accordingly in Sablno'i* " American Loyat- 
t«t«.~ 1( appears that he Icfl Boston fur London in 17(iM, on m> 
eount of impairi'd health. lie was then nenrly sixty yeare old, 
having been born in Ilixton .Mareh 2.'}, ITUil. lie eslablirhed a 
mercantile correspondenci; with Boston and Jamaicii. and resided in 
London till November. 1775, wlicn, on account of increaxing in- 
6rmi(iee, llie interruption of commercial intercourse eauKed by war, 
and ili<> ex|)en8e of living in the meiropulla, he went to Bath, 
wlu-re hi' dit-d unmarriinl in 17!)3. 

His Icttvrt tliriiii^h the tvholc period of the war *h<>w that his 
sympathies were with his "townsmen," as he eontintietl to adi liia 
fi'iends in Boston. He deprecate* the " vindictive mca«urc« " of 
governiitont, semis money fur the relief of the distressed people of 
Boeton, oik) nriirs us fnllitvii', nfier hearing of the dcfeiit of Gates 
at Camden : "This unfortunate event has buried nil pacific ihoughia, 
and inspired this sanguinury administration to continue this inferDal 
contest, witli the ostensible view of subjugating the colonics, 
although the real pnqio»c is continuing in otliee. and fleecing the 
(•eople, whoitc i>pints «-cm wholly dissipated and broke."

four of the l)oolt taay be found a report, dated " 22: 6: 1 662," of the com- 
nittcc having charge of the lolllemcnt of the pliuilation at Netmock^t, now 
Mendoo. Among the names of thtise ac:c«pled lu proprieioni, or to whom 
allotmeiila of land were ma<le, a portion of whom arc iinid to be of Brain- 
irce and other* of Wevinontli, appi^ars that of " Goodmrm Jtaj/Htt" of 
Weymouth. Tlie miuuitt has meordtd it aa "Ruj-nur," and connected 
with It. in parentbesis, the wordi ("The Minister"), which do not appear 
in tlie original record, and arc thercforu misleading. IId auumec, more- 
over, that this maOi whom ehrution name appeara to have been "John," 
wu the lint miniater of the town. Now the origitinl entry clearly rcnda 
" Bayoea," And iu a copy of the tlr>l liook of rccurU.i. made by order or the

- Rayue*." 

FartfaernMre, there b no evidence that Rev. John Rayoer, at otie lime a 
pntoher ai Uendou, waa ever an inliahitaiit of Weymouib. His father, 
Bev. John Raynor, waa for several yenrii tbe mUiister of Plymouth, Mui^. 
and about Xdhi removed to Dover, N. H., nliera he resided until liia death. 
Moreover, the John Rayeer, Jr., uaumed to have bceu on« of the proprle* 
Ion nixl tha first min>*t«r of Mendou, wna iu the year I6G2 a ttudeui in 
Harvard Collogo, aud only nineteen ytart old, having been born at I'ly-

iiig for ifaom, how long? The pulitJoners wiy "tlds winter." What win- 
tori' Host dearly tho winter of l<>ti8-0, just past, i^ meant. Had Mr. 
Bayiier been proaching at Mcndoti three years or luord. as the annalist io- 
timaiea. would the pvtition«irs hnvo been likely to have siud simply " this 
winter"? His father diixl at Dover, N. H.. April 30. IfiOS. about a month 
previous to ibo dut« of tho petitiuri above mentioned. Mr. Itaynor doubl- 
Ims led town Pear the dale of hi* father's dcratli, and probably never ro- 
tunied to rcMume his parochial duticis, for on ihu l"M of July, followin};, bo 
was invited to occupy tho pulpit at Dover, made vacant by bis father'a 
death, thoufrU he was not ordained there until July 12, 1G7I. 

Furtherinure, ibe itatomeni is lumle in the Genealogical Register of 
July. IHH. p. 33:f, by Kev. A. H. Quioi. D.D., wbo Is reliable aulbority, 
thrttJubn Bayner.Jr., afUir gradnatiou in 1G63, resided for some time at 
Dover, uuil pursued liis theological studies witli his father, and was in fe^ 
hie health, iboujih some of the lime ho was au UMislant to hb father. Hence 
there in liiudly a puMibility that ho could have been >t Meudon in 1CG4, as 
thf uiiiislJBLsupposc-s. 

It will, therefore, be readily seen that ibe mistake relative I* the jfrrt 
minium arises ft-om tlio a4«iim|ition that "•Goodman Kaynes." of Wey- 
mouth, admitted as a proprietor in li!l>2. was John ICayner the subsequent 
luiiilster. Itul ihey wore very different persons, aa we shall see. 

There was a John Itanes wbo married. November 34, 1659, Mary, tho 
danuliier of Dea. John ttogers, of Weymouth. And be, !u all human 
proliabiliiy, was the " Uooilman Kaynos" meulloued In lGG2asoneof the 
pritpritrtui's of Alendoii, and said to bo of Weyinoutb. In tlioae days the 
same name was fre<]>ionlly spelled dift'orenily. acconling to the fancy of who- 
ever wrote It. [JcH. Uogani, in his will, calls bis xoii-in-Iuw " John Jiane." 
Ttie name lEayner in nUo Rpt-tled several dlft'eri-iiC ways. All this i;ocs to 
prove ibat it was " Gooilman llaynes," or " Banes," or " Bane." to whom 
laiid was allotted in Hit!?. Ho, however, probably iterer reelded at Uen* 
dou. as liis name, wo think, \» found no whore else on the town records. 

Who, iben, was ilio "presnit minister" lo whom meadow land was u- 
•igned in I Ij6f ? Thoro may bo a little doubt wbo he was. But the pro- 
suinptiuu is very tirong Ibat it was Benjamin Kliot, son of tlio ** A|iosll«

The year 1300. indoml, i* niomorable not only a» luarklng an important

Itan archiiocmrr, painting and poolrr. From 1204 to 1300, the year in

this movement, ai wkro imturnlly may, the ootniug iu of our Dio<lati* to tales

there but in foreign land*, to prove thi-minlvca nn eaiinoiitir itirring raco. 
by public services, liiemry, profcsiinnul, civil, milttnry and diploDiatic, in 
eminent positions in State and Church, almost always on tbo side of liberty 
and truth. 

I'assing over the eon of the Decemvir of 1370, Dr. Nioolb Diodati, who 
died in N43. we come to a generation of Hfloeu children of bin, by mar- 
riage with Fmnoetca di Poggio, among whom tho third by birth, named 
Wichele, bom in 1410, who married Catennn llnon*i»i, wnn a profiMor in

Antonio, horn in 1410, held the offlco of Ancient, and was Gonfalonier La 
14fil. 

Tho race seems to have been continued only through Alcasandro. *oa of

Now began those encroachments upon the fair docnnin nf liberty and culture

One of the cliief marks of dislinciion reeeived by our Geuevete divine, 
and which is next to bo noticed iu the order of time, was bis appointraeat, 
jointly with Tronchin, to repittiont Geneva ut the Synod of Don, Iu 1618-

been doubt about iuviiin;' any ilelegates from the cliief seat of CaiviuiMia

injudjjingof the orthodoxy of the Beoiooslrantti ; iior could there have 
been dio»cn two mou toss disposed to any uoraproiuise in mnilcrs of ihoo-

thattoNderii«Mof fejuipalliy fur erroriiil», nor that brondcr menial habit of dts- 
crimination botwoen the oMcntinl and the unesitenlial. which no have reason 
to suppose belonged lo Diodati by nninre and through iho influence of his 
spociiil [milling in Biblical eiudy, Ecemii to have pre^urved him from a cer- 
tain hardness of rofeisCance to the plea for toleration, or at leaat for a lil>eral

The Rev. Samuel Cutler. 



[July. 



knew bolh Dr. Payeon and Mr. Cutler, rnoet have been able to 
di8tiiiguii>h many truita in ttic one which reminded them of the 
other. Coiniiiiring Dr. Cuiiiininf:K'H memoir of Kdwiird Paveoo 
with Mr. CiitlmV ]>rivnte jwirnal, I huvc l)Ocn attoniihcd «l (he aim- 
ilaricv- The former in character and acrvice wac a noble model, 
(ho Inttcr a worthy copy. 

The second copartnership which Mr, Ciitlcr had formed in Port- 
land expired in Fcbruiiry, 1834, ut which time he enme to BoMton, 
wntiectin^ bim.ii-lf at partner with the importing and juhhln^ firni 
of Ivlwnrd Clnrkc & Co., the rcbiiion being 6nally diMolvcd in 
1837-8. And now arrived tlie second important epoch in \\u hi«- 
toiy. His heart had long said, " Voii inny be useful as n minister of 
Jmus ;" and he now thouj;ht he heard tiod'it voice proclaiming " Thtt 
it tlic way, wtilk t/e In it." Tlic tjucHlion of duty i«(»rcly tnmblcd 
him. Flattering openings nppc.-ircd in commercial life, and indica- 
tions were notwfliitiug ibnt such might be bia proper sphere. He 
deprecated what he regarded ns hia lew nitiiinments nnd meagre abil- 
ity, but the cull of God oould not bo disregarded. "Ciin I prepare 
myoclfforthe ministry?" he imiuircil ; to this the answer came, "If 
God has called you, lie will enable you to prepare youraelf ; the 
five loaves will increase io the distribution ; tue one talent may bo 
mtdtiplied if improved ; go on, and trust in the Lord." He went 
on. After muob reflection, conferring only with his wife, and aeck- 
iDg the direction of Him without whoae aid nil our con»ultulioDS 
arc little worth, he came to his decision. " I trust," he writes, 
"(hut it i« a correct decision. — and if so. may God give me grace 
to engage earnestly mid peraeveringly anti prayerfully in the work 
of preparation for the ministry ; if in tliat mini(>try He will be 
pleased to make me an instrument of promoting Hia glory nnd of 
saving souls.'' How faithfully this prayer was answered and the 
work performed, scores of the redeemed declare, some in heaven 
and some on cnrth. 

On May 12th, 1841, Mr. Cutler was ordained in St. ?««!'■ 
Church in Boston to the Dianonnlc by the Rl. Itcv. Bishop Gria- 
wold of the Protestant Episcopal Church. In the following year he 
wna onlaincd a Presbyter in St. Andrew's Church, Hanover, Mnu., 
to the Rectorship of which he had been called. In this latter oi^ 
dination. Bishop Griswuld wna assisted by the Rev. John Woarl of 
Christ Church, Boston, nnd the Rev. Thoniaa M. Clarke, then 
Rector of Grace Church, nnd now Bishop of Rhode leland. iSr. 
Culler remained at Hanover more than thirty years ; which foot 
alone is more emphatic than any language possibly could be, Ib 
demonstration of the high value tlmt his jieoplc plnc<'d upon hia 
labors, and of their deep and abiding attnclimcnt to him as a man. 
Hia re4ij|[niition in 1872 was accepted with unfeigned sadness. Hia 
departure from Hanover was a loea auatalncd not by bis pariah alone, 
but by the oommunity at large. The "Abington Standard" of

April, 1S72, <]4iibtlcM trullifuU}' cxprcfsvil the feelings of its read- 
en. M'hvn, in an cxlcodcd Ruiice of Mr. Cutler's work of tliir^ 
yeare, it tctlified itint he "was uiiivernii)1;r re*pec1c(l imd beloved; 
thnt the iD)|ir<^t*ii of liia ministry would nut euon be effaced ; tliiit he 
iroiilil bo iull»K<-il by nmiiy good wirlivd, and long be held in re- 
•p(H.-ifiil and iiffcciionntc nnictijbranc*." 

Tlic full of ia77 brought to(;cthcr in lliu city of Boston the Tri- 
ennial Convention of the frotc^iaat Epipcopal Church. In aome 
reepecte thi& was the moat notable gathering in the hiitory of tlint 
boily. It nitncMcd the roncluvion of the Wiirmly conrestcd battle, 
whirh hnd bwm wnpcd wiibin its communion between llie high and 
the lovf Church parties for nearly or quite a qiuiripr <>t a cen- 
tury. "The result of that lonjt war was victory all along the line 
for the rilualistte advance," wrote John Henry nopkinn, D.D.. 
one of iho boldcM and ablevt rcpre^nlntivea of the High Church 
pony. "A victory bo cumpk-tc," he ml(l». "thm the renewal of 
no»tilitica hcrciil'tcr ix hopck-M." This the wrilor connidt-rA apparent 
cvfu lo a Biiperficiul obBcrver ; and men of Mr. Ciiller'ii mould) 
therefore, felt that there vrns no longer a place within the Protott- 
ant Kpiacopal Church where they could honc«i1y labor. Hie view* 
of the truth were acquired in the extreme evangelical achool. Wa» 
it not nniurnl that he should look with dismay at what he ci>nHidered 
to be a deflection in the Church of his love? In fact, this win the 
underlying; cuubc of his refignation at Hanover, to which wc have 
jutt nfcnxid. Ho was relieved, and his mind brought lo a point 
howcvtr, by the result of thin convention of 1877, wlicn, nfier long 
and prayerful deliberation, he recigned his office as presbyter in the 
Prolcaiant Kpiscopnl Church. Hard wiiit the sttugglc, bitter the 
anguish it cost, but "in the spirit with which John Wintlirop 
anil his Puritan companions, hefuro leaving Ynrmouih in ItiSO (ot 
these western shores, bade an afTeciionate adieu to the Church of 
England, irusting in God to be with and to guide them, bo with the 
pra>er ilmt the divisions and cii)u|)roini9es in llie Protectant Episco- 
pal Church might be overruled for the glory of Oud, he aaid, 
farew, 11 ! " 

More than thi^e Bcoro ycare and ten of his life hnd now been 
spent. Unremittingly he had wielded the Sword of the Spirit in the 
deffin'o o( (he Truth fur ii liiird of a century. He carried the mnrks 
of cunlliet. Mi^ht he not luivc retired in glory and rested in peace? 
No one could have gnineayeil such an act. But his work wiut not 
done. Coke at the ago of ecTcnty si«rtcd to Chrislinnizc India; 
might he not aa well have yet n task to perform? The Itcfunned 
Kp)ii<-iipnl Church, or<!:anI/.i'd by the more aggressive and zeiiloa« of 
bis earlier colleagues, hnd been in existence three years. It was a 
Miicily J*roleslanl liturgical church ; canonically free from roman- 
iziog errors, with an o|)eD pulpit, and bnernmeularianism expunged. 
It was indeed — as he diou<'ht — the cliurch of liia fathers, the Pro-

his fnitli I 'i'lie hidtory of his »ui)sequonl efiorte in Uu^lun iniiy be 
briefly niirriitcd. On the I3tli of November, lt<77, his letter of 
rosigiintion to the Bishop of thii- Diocese, iipjieared in print. On 
the Adtcnt Sumbiy foIlDwing, with n liitic Imnd of devoted ndher- 
cnts, he ioaugurntcd public services in the Frccmnn I'liicc Clinpel, 
under tbc constitution and canons of tlic liefanned Eiii»cu[)il 
Cliurcb. This iLi^ion in rejrnidcd ws the crowning act of bis life, the 
ciip-o ho itf uf bill bidtDry ! In miiny respects it piirlook of the cluir- 
iicter of true heroism. Fricnd«i were few. nnd fue* were many, but 
ibe invincible faith of Samuel Cutler neither re(]uircd the encour- 
agement of the one, nur was dismayed by the derision of tlie 
other. He gave no heed to opjvi^ition. In the consciousness of 
right he vti\» content, if need be, to stand alone I During the two 
yettm in which he served as pastiir of this little flock, his Uulc tvaa 
that of a conserralor rather than a promulgator of their pHrticitliu- 
viewa. and when ei;;biec.u moiiilH ago, at bin own request, bis suc- 
cessor ap]ieare<l, ni> the work be;:iin to develop and promise a hap- 
py result, be felt that nt ki>t he inif;h[ die. ilin language was then, 
" LonI, now let ihy servant depart." Tbc day of ha|ipy release soon 
came. In tlie early spring of last year he was attacked by tliscBM 
of a rbcuinatic iiniure, wliieh de^L-il the physician's skill. Ilis 
death however wa* hastened, jierbiips, by his own indisposition 
to remain. "All the days of his appointed time would be wait till 
hid change came." but stUl he ivaa anxious to go. " Why tnrry so 
the chariot wheels ? " he snid ; " C'onie quickly, Lord Jesus, come ! " 
It w«i> juMt liefore dawn on the morning of the 17tli of July, 1880, 
that his spirit departed. Tbc closing day" and hours of hi" life were 
spent in testifying to the power and gooducsB of God. His sutTcr- 
ing was at limes severe, yet not a munnur escaped ; the Atonement 
of Christ was tlie tlienie of liin thougbt : lie o^en rehearsed the 
priimiecs ; hi« faith never failetl. Triumphantly rettiguiiig his 
strongest nnd tendercst lies, he glided away without a fmr or h 
doubt into tbc fullioinle^s. measureless ocean of GikI. " He came to 
bis grave like as a sliock of corn comeib in in his season." Ho was 
ripe for the kingdom. Ripe in yearn, ripe in his worldly relations, 
ripe in the fulfilmeiit of the happiest dream of his life. Tliat life

Mr. Cutler's influence extended greatly beyond bis immediate 
circle of frienda and acquAinUtuces. He wa« a cupioui writer — the

^ 



autltor of wvcnil tracts and larger devotional works, anil n frequent 
Oontril>utor to llic pcnotlicnl [)rci>«. Anioiig (he larger devotional 
books from hi« pen may be mentioned thovc entitled, "The Naids 
Above Every Name," and " Tlie Work of the Holy Spirit;" being 
doctrinal and prneticol tuedituliotia for every diiy in tbo yenr. Both 
of them, recently rcvUed, arc publUhed by (he Atuericsn Tract 
Society. He nna a promoter of private and pulilic ctinritii's; • 
db«c(or of the North Knd Miflsion : inlcrcsied in the American 
Bible and Troet Sociytiea, ilie General Theological Library of Boston, 
and other similar iniiti{u(i»n*. 

On the Slh of November, 1869, he wM admitted a reaident mem- 
ber of the New England Uisiorie, Gcnc)i1o;iicnl Budeiy, and the 
following year constituied himfelf a life member. Ho took nn ac- 
tive pan in the nfi'tiira of the society, and mode frequent contriba- 
tioii.t ti> the librnry. During the abnencc of the recording secretary 
from the United Stated, Mr. Cutler was choecn secrctiry pro Urn- 
pore, and peiformed the duties of that office from December, 1873, 
to June, 1874. At the annual meeting, January 6, 1875, ho was 
ebooeii hisloriogmpher to succeeil the Kev. Dorus Olnrke, D.D. 
This office, for which he hud peculiar quolificiitionK, be held till hia 
death, over live years and n half. In ibis lime be wrote memorial 
sketches of more than one hundred and seventy-five deceased mem- 
bers, which wei« read at tlie monthly meetings of the society and adeiv 
wnrds printed in the Kegisteii. 11i6 readers of this work will 
agree with the writer, that they are models of concise biography, 
showing a painslnking accuracy and love of truth. 

Although Mr. Cutler was twiee married, no living descendant sur- 
Tived him ; his only child — a son, bom of his second wife — having 
died eleven years ago, at the age of tliirty-tbrcc. The firvt marriage 
of Mr. Cutler took place August 31, 1829, with Julia A., daugh- 
ter of Levi and Lucretia Cutter, of the city of Portland, Maine. 
The H'c<in<l, June I'J, 1833, with BUxabcth I)., daughter of John 
■ad Deborah Gnrducr, of Exeter, N. H., who surviveH him. 

He wns ever intensely active, earnest and aggrc«sivo in the cause 
of the Lord ; and like Hexektah, " in every work that bo began in 
the service of God, he did it with all bid heart, and prospered." 
And yet he was a man of great prndcncc. No one could imrt^no 
him biwty, or rn«h, or unwise. It was his habit to dclibcmic long; 
to weigh cause and effect. He was conscientious to an extraordi- 
nary degree. The paramount question witli him was not, " What ia 
my policy?" but, " What is my dntt/ f The personal sacrilice ba 
made on leaving the old church to unite with the new, turned on a 
qucitliun of conscience; so did bis change from mercantile life to 
the bumble and unremunemtive work of the gospel. It would be 
almost superfluous to say to those who knew him tlnit he was pure 
in his life. One can hardly conceive that he had ever nn enemy,

0. Ho ukcd tn« \( it were not true that I bad left my houea in C»lrfl»

that T lui'i pa*Kcd tlifi nmmor wiib my wife at my farm noar Ang!u«, at-

ootlasfe and all the bay nnd straw on my farms, together with my furniture, 
and IiikI been detuileii in tlie uight to arrest us, sa iiiureaaod my wife'* feare 
that we were obliged to depart. This waa the more uec«iaary because we 
coahl no longer remain in chat locality by reason of an ordinance of the 
Intenditiit which forbade Imrboring tliose of the Religion under the penalty 
of &<JU lirrei Une.

The Sr. Barbara couilemnud me on the pre«umpiion tbat my dedre to

made for auoiber reutoii. imkI won due to ttie peraeoutttm of a private

What right bad be to cnmlcmn me out of bis imagination ? Even if bis

tlomcD, with Mr. John Winthrop, were the same day put in nom- 
ination for the im[forlunt position of Governor of the Company, 
preparatory to the (rnveriiiiient heing traiiafcTTCt) to Now England. 
Tbo Court "having received cxtraorOinary great commcndacotia " 
of Mr. Winthrop, "both for his iotcgritie and Bufficiencie, as being 
one every way well fitted and accoinpliftlied for the phtce of Governor," 
did witi) a general rote and a full cinticnt, " by errccon of liimtLri," 
choose him tJie Governor of said Company for " the ensuing year, to

rdirtcd by Got. Dudley, in Iiia Letter to the CountMs of Linooln, 
written nine months after the arrival of the euii^^rHiiiM in thi' Bay. 
"Vpon the tliinl of .Iiinujirj'." I<i;i0-31, "<Iywi llic djiiij;hlcr of

to be reraeuibred in Una place." A few weelu »iil)oei|ncntIv uio- 
tber calamity befell Mr. Sharp. Uii Uku lf>lh of Maich, ''* abont 
DOOQ," iiceori]in<^ to Gov. Winlhrop (pee his ■lotirual, i. iS), 
"the chimney of Mr. Sharp's house in Dostun took fire, {the «plin- 
tors bcin<; not clayed at the top) and taking the thatch burnt it 
down, and the win<l being N. \V. drove the fire to Mr CoUmm'B 
liouae, 1>eing [blank] rods olf, and bnriit that down aleo, yet thej 
MVLil inodt of their goods. " (iuv. Dudley has it, that ibe accident 
occurred on the 17th, an<l ad<Id, " both whoae bowsed, whidi were 
u good, and tu well furiiinhed n» the uiont in the phnlacl6n were in 
S hourea tpacc burned to the ground together with much of tbdr 
houBohold Btuff, appnrell and other thingee as allsoe eontc goods of 
oUiers who Boiourued w'" them in their howecfl." "For ihe prerca- 
tion whereof," be onitintieit, "in our new towne intended this «omer 
to bee builded, wee have ordered that nuc man there shall build IiU 
chimney with wood, our cover hia house with thatch, which was 
readily assented vntu, fur that divers other bowses have been burned 
since our nrrivoll (tlie Bre nllwaieg bcginniiigc in the wooddoa 
chimneyH)." 

Later in hie letter, Dudley writes, "The thipp now waites bnt 
for wind, which when it blowes there are ready to go aboard tltereiii 
for Knghuid Ht. Richard SoItonAlall, Mr Sharpe, Mr Coddingtoo 
and many others, the iao#t whereof purpose to returnc to vs againe, 
if Ood will." Mr. Coddington, and also the Rev. John Wilson 
who wa:i one of the passengers in that vessel, rcturnetl, but Salton- 
atall and Sharp cnnic not again. The chip set sail IVcim 8iilcm, on 
her outward voyago, April 1st, and arrived safely nt London on the 
89th of the same month. 

Whether Mr. Shar{), on his return to England, took up his abode 
in GrotDD, the nnlivo place of Guv. Wiiithrup, we cannot Ii-ll,^a8

JOHN AND SAMUEL BROWNE'S APPLICATION TO 
THK iMASSACHUSKlTS COMPANY, 1629. 

OoumunicalMl by Wtu.iAM B. Ta««K, Btq., or Bofton. 

STUDKNTS of early American hijlorjr lire genernlly conversant, 
wo prcuinc, with the story of ihi! two brother*, Juliu and .Sam- 
uel Browne, "t)ie lawyer and the merchant," the former hcitig bq 
Assiatant, who were joined with other in em hero to he a Council ot 
tlic Mssdoehuiietttt iiluntatimi or colony, ol' whom Emlieot was con- 
firmfd :ie Gori'nior. Soon after rhuir arrival hcri', if not prfvions- 
ly, ilitlercnoee of an uccleeiastiL'al nature urosc. The Browncs and 
others net up Episcopacy, maintaining views at variance with the 
two ministera, Skclion and Higginson, w[io did not "use tbe book 
of common prayer," and wore non-con form iula. " Their ai>«eciiea 
and praclisoi^ tcndin;; to mutiny find fiietiun," w it was ullcf^, 
" the governor told them, that New Entrl'Hid was no place for such 
lis they ; and lliercl'ore he sont them both back for England, at cfafl 
return of ihv E>hipa the camo year." 

The firliclc iicrc jirintcd settles the question, nearly, as to tin 
time of arrival in iCngland, and givee tbe name of tlio vessel In 
which they sailed. 

Mr. Kelt (Hint. Sulem, i. GO) has fuc-similes of the autogmpha 
oftliutwo Browncs, "taken from the Colony Kcconls. The ter-

ciuelj who WHS the lint Uumuier ul' the family. There is a g.ip i^ oaii> 
Dot bo bridged. / 

There was a certain John Dummer who was Pnepo^tus or Eoev j of tho 
borough nf Overtoil in Mamptliire, in 1471, and who wae ameretil iu that 
boroni;h in the 2l«t of Kiij^ Henry VII., 1505-6. Who he yt*. wh«ro 
he can)e fVom, or when he died, I bavo been unable to aaceruiu, and aui 
no wiiere Kiid any other refereuce to tiioi. 

I. A little later, viz., in 1523, there apjieara at UwHlebmy, in the aame 
county, a ISicJiaril I'f^Jren, or Pyltirrm, who died before '.'"ebruary, 15-10-1, 
and wa« buried at Uwslebury. He wai a freeholder of Overton aboY»> 
mentioned, and is variously called, in the Manor Court rolls and other 
records, " Richard I'yWren alia* Domer." " Kichiird Dummor aUoM Pyl- 
dren," and "Richard Pyldreni altat Dummer." His wife Matilda, or 
llaude, survived liim, and was living at On&lebury in 1515, as " Mawda 
Pillgryme," and in 154!) as " Mawdo Illdrent," hut was buried at Utvd» 
bury, accordiD;» to her sod's will, before 24lh August, 1559. Whether her 
maidmi-namo was I'yidreu, and her husband aiuained it on their marriiu^ci, 
or whctlicir slio waii a. Dummer and ho had nddeil lior pntronymiu to his 
own, and, if so, wliothor sho was a daughter and hciroM of the John l>um- 
mor of Overton above named, are questions that my most anxious sonrches 
do not oiialile me to answer, and it is not probtihio that they ctcr enn be 
answered. Itut as her sons and grandson coutinutd to use the nnme of Pyl- 
drcn hefiire thnt of Dummer, and iw, nlthongli at some distance from Owslo- 
hnry. they continued to he freohnldors oi' Overton, acid m tliis Richard and 
Matilda gave the nanie ol John to the only two sons they had, titers 
may be a fair prccumntion that Matilda was tho daughter and hcirou 
of John Dummer of Overton, and that her himbaud, lirst ai^uming her 
sumnnid as an alias, liiially dro]i|ted bis o\vii altogether, or rather 
tlint hi* deicendanU did. The conjecture however is not siisceptildo of 
proof ubjolute, nnd it cwu only he itasoned from analogy that the assump- 
tion of a second surname by I'yldron, as in the ease of Almore, was duo 
to the fact that Xm bail " maicbed with Uummer's heir." 

At all events, this UJoliard I'yldron and Maude his wife were the eat^ 
li«tt anctrstors, of ii'honi we can bo absoliiiely certain, of tlie Dumtnera of 
New England, and of tlishopstokc and elsewhere in Hampshire. Thej 
]«ft two nuns, both uamwl John, and evidontljr no other children. One of 
(heee Johns, whether the cldi-r or vimngor cannot Ira dolerminod, was mar- 
ried at Newton Valence. Hants, .Jtb Octohor. 15-11, to Joaoo, daughlor of

Th« trill waa [iroved in Uio Prerogative Court of Canterbury, on th« 
lOtb of Di'i-cmbor, 1690. by the relict Marj, and the daughter Soaanna, 
wife of Robert Andrewi,

*' Dcra lycth tb« Ibidy ofThoroaa Dummer, Mnior, of Swathling. Uent., «rho 
diad Maroh IT, IB8S, in bin fi9th year." 

Why his will wa« not pmved tn Loodon ttnttl nearlj two yean >ftor hit 
death, ta^y bo cxplainml on (ho jireBiimptiuii that it wa« immodiatvljr pforod 
ill IImt I'oculinr Court of hi« neighborhood, tbe reoorda of which are loat, 
au'l that KnbMqiiirntly it bocauie u«oeMary to prove il also in Tendon. Hu 
widow Hary survived bim more ihau thirty yearft. an<l was huric-d at Smith 
SlOQsham on the 4th of June, 1720. She boa no uioDuinent, nor can nnjr 
will of horn he found. Probably the left uooe, as she mast bavo lived U 
extreme ol<l age, certainly beyond eighty. 

It baa been always aaid thai the three etnlgrauEs to New England, Rich- 
ard, Stephen and Thomot Dnmmcr, mere hroOiir*. but tliix !■ an evidont 
mistake ao fur n* the laf^l is concerned. Tlie age of the Thomaa who wont 
ont in the " Bevi* " is given as 1 9, in the well kDonn list of paMongers 1^ 
that VAsael, but that list oontaing ol>ber irreconcilcablo itauments. It n 
afaaoiutely ecrtnin tlmt Joane, daaghti^r of Thomo* Dnminer, broiher of 
Kdurd and Sieplieu. nurrird Tliomos Nclnoii n> early as IfilA : atnl tliera- 
lOTt equally cenatu tlut she was not the daughter of a man who Iwd eod- 
grated In 1638 at tbe age of 19. My impression is that Thomaa, the bro- 
ther of Richard and Stephen, nurrr went to Now England at all, but that 
BldMrd. OD bis return to New England in I&a8,took with bim tbe wife and 
dbildr^D of Stepbeu (who bad remained to Now England), and also Joune, 
daughter of their brother Tliooiu*. and Thomas (be son of ibeir brother 
John, the same Thoma* whose history we are now diicussing. who would 
hant been about 19 in 1038, and tliat he afterwanls returned lo England. 
M did hia ancle Stephen, and other* of (lie family. Tliis concIusioD seem 
lo be sustained by the fact that iherd appears lo be do trace of Tbomai 
Dtmuner in New England after 1650, when his name oocars in the list of 
Ibe ori^nol MMllers of g^liabuiy.

2. Richard Dummer, with which, howevi'r, I have little to do, as Ihs 
later portions of it Wong almooi entiroljr to Now England. He it aaid 
to haw bvitu l)orn at BidiopEtokv about 1698, but this, owing to tho Ion of 
tbo early RiHbopiUikc parish -rrgiBter, cannot bo verified. In ibu liat of 
tliD paaaengora hy tlie " ltevi«," heretofore referred to, his age is given U 
40 in 1638. The only record I find of him in Ln^Innd is that in 1631, 
provioiu to hit fir^t going to Now Mnglnnd, h« sottled a rsntrdiorge of 
40 shillinn per nnnum, nut of hi« lands in ltishop«U>kc, to tho use (H tho

be paid a (ulMioiiuuot vtait to England i« provud by tho foot that iu 16&0-1 
be proved, in ibi: Prerogative Court of Caiilerbury, the will of Tbomoa Nel- 
•OD, liunband of hi* maea Joane. 

The ouly record* I have found relating to any of hia deeoendanis refer 
to bi* grauUon, the well kiuiwu Jeruiuy DumiDor, and hit great-grmnd- 
daughter Elizabeth, daughter uf Samuel Dummoraud EUiabeth Rugglet. 

Among oeriwin recoriU, kindly searched tor and tmnacrilwd for me br 
Hr. Henry F. Waters, Sulcui, Maim., from the Probate Begistry of Mid- 
dleaex County at Eont Cambridge, are the following .- 

" Daniel Rogers, of Littleton. Cleik. appointnl Ailminiitmtor en tbe ettate of

The record I have fonnd evidently refers to that unknown estate in Bn^

WAS GOV. LEVERETT A KNIGHT? 

AT the monthly meeting of the New England Hittorie, Genea^ 
logical Society, May 5, 1880, tho following letter from JIp. 
TSitllc waa received and rend : 



Letteb or Cbaklca W. Ttrrri.B, Pn.D. 

SotCon, .Vay 4, 1960. 
Drak Sir : I have to ngm that I abnll not lie able to attend Um 
Biwiing of the nocSety to-tuorrow. an I iutetiJML 

For KcHDC time I liave deairod to »ubtuit lo the oonaideratkm of tho toch 
cty a prO|>OGitiuu looking lo a »oluttou of tlie questloii wliMber John Le^ 
erett. i^^tTuur of MikBHachuMltc Bay Colony tram 1G78 to 11179, was 
knigliie'l by Chart<?a II. of Eiiglaod. lltH koightUood is fVeqaontly and 
Bok-muly affirmed as a liistorical Tncc iii itie pages of the fyeverctt Klemo- 
rial, Doi eicepiiiig the tiile-pagc of thai roluiue, aa tf it ncre iiDqiMMlioa- 
aUe. 

Kly impr«MioD is that this alleged act of the king nerer waa made pubUe 
(ill within f)l\y yean past. At all ereots, this anDoiincemctit mutt bara 
been received irith siirjiriHO by all who knew the hi8Io^y of th« king and 
of the govprnor. No one was prepared to heliovo tliat Chnrlea !I. had any 
such regard for the I'lirilan tiovcrnor, tho aider «nd almtior of Cromwell 
— ill overlhrowing the tnonarchy — as in imptied by conferring on liini 
knigljlliood, or Ibac the GoFernor bad any such regard for the Cavalier 
king mid his court, as lo indoee him to aceept it- And yd the contrary ii 
orecd. among other thing>i, to establiih the Ihct of knightjtooil. 

The BiTlniinlivc evidonco is not strong; it oonsists of a single letter of 
business f^om Mr. Secretary Williamson lo Governor I^rcrt'tt. <bted in 
August, 1676, wherein tho latter is styled a knight in the addreo ; and 
also a docnmont, now miwbg or lost, supposed to bo the royal tcliert pat«nt 
oonfcrriiig this distinction. Stmngo this letter, nliorciii no moiitiou is made 
of kniglitbood. except bj> it appean to tlm Governor's namn in the addresw, 
should lio prcHcrred, and tho imporUnt bnlky l^ttvrs FHteot creating htm 
knight ah on Id he IntL 

Ihin in a novel tray of conferring a« well ns proving title to knlgbtbood. 
Aa Co the letter, no one wlm known what a gruat hlundorcr the itwri-iarj 
WM regarding Atnnriciin alluini and hisUiry, will attach any importuiice to 
that. Ilnw came the secretary, liofort! and nftur. to forget tlial thi> Gov- 
ernor WEu a kiilghl? If thii niiuhiMl of proving right to a title wert^ allow- 
able one might easUy prove, from liii tilcn of lutlur*, a title a> high as he 
night choose to lay oluim, and a* varioux as hi* fancy coiili) dtuire. How 
oflen dcir-s blunder or dtuigii compliment u* in a letter, with a title wholly 
inapplicable and foreign to ountelvesl 

'I'bL- negative evidence is gtrutigly against thii tbcorj- of kniglitbood la 
IG'ii, or any uther ye«r In the rei^i of Charles II. 

During my h!>itt>rieid reueardiet concerning thucon({u<-Ktof Aotdia by tbA 
Dutch ia )t)74, I had occatiou to obnerve with much care tlic official rel^ 
tioiia — and 1 know of no other — between Charles II. and Governor Leve-
